Ethan Martin Makes Start in Atlanta

August 14, 2013

Ethan Martin makes his first appearance in Atlanta.

The Toccoa native pitched in front of numerous family and friends Tuesday as he started for the Philadelphia Phillies against the Atlanta Braves in Turner Field.

Martin pitched well in five innings for the Phillies, allowing just three runs and six hits, while striking out six and walking two.

However, Braves’ starter Kris Medlen was also sharp and the Braves beat the Phillies 3-1.

The big hits for the Braves were an RBI double from Kris Medlen in the second inning and a two-home run from Chris Johnson in the third inning.

Martin told MLB.com after the game that he was kind of surprised that he did not have more butterflies pitching in Atlanta against the team he rooted for as a child.

Meanwhile, Phillies’ Manager Charlie Manuel told MLB.com that Martin battled the Braves and went right after them.

Martin is 1-2 on the season for the Phillies in three starts after being called up this month from Triple-A, where he was 11-5 this season.
